Mate fingers crossed he and his family are ok. Very keen to know he's ok. Stay Safe you Qlders my heart goes out to you all affected by this. Very distressing watching it all unfold from down here.Fiona and I were only talking last night about had we moved to Qld like we'd planned to, from what we've seen and been told the area we favoured in Bunderberg is under water so yeah in some way I feel like "maybe"we were lucky we made the choice we did!

i had to deliver bins into some of the flood effected areas today & it's hard to describe the feeling you get when you see all the damage.
all i can say is thank god it didn't happen to me, i just wish i could help them more.

Saw Goodna on the news ... looked a mess. Did your house receive much damage Ron?

We got out yesterday. All roads to Cairns open. It was the quietest trip I've ever made on the Bruce Hwy. As soon as we got to Cooroy their was hardly any traffic. No trucks tried to pass us as their weren't any and the cars were few and far between.

Cheers ...
